I think he looks promising as a starting defensive end. He has had to sit and wait his turn but now he has a shot to start. I think he as a good motor and can produce double digit sacks. Agree? Disagree?

I think he can depending on the talent around him.

Buck and Garcia seem to think he is. At least they were talking that way on their show this afternoon.

I think he is, but he'll get doubled unless Kemo or another DT proves they can consistently get penetration.

He's a real dawg! I've watched him over the years, and I can tell you that everyone will probably be pleasantly surprised at what this kid can do. Once he gets settled and a little starting experience under his belt, I expect him to be awesome. After seeing the mechanics and drive of C.J., <10 sacks per year = disappointment in my book.

C.J. is raw talent with plenty of size and muscle. He has a powerful motor with the spirit to match. With the experience, he will become an NFL beast.

Gotta double someone in a 4 man pass rush and Johnson will be our biggest threat when Peppers leaves (barring a big FA/draft pick up). Not like you have to leave a blocker free to worry about a disguised blitz coming from somewhere against the Panthers.

People would like to believe that we need a 1st round DE, atleast that was the case last year but I like to point out that if it wasn't for Johnson coming out early, he could've easily been a 1st round draft pick last April. The boy has talent. Could he live up to Peppers' standards? Probably not but this may not be a bad transition.

What we need is a DT that can be plugged in next to him to help relieve that double coverage. If we can find another Jenkins (with less troubled past) then I wouldn't be far fetched to say that our defense will be a lot better next year.

I will be disappointed if Charles Johnson is not starting at defensive end next year. And yes, I do think he's capable of double-digit sacks in a season.

Yes, he's capable of 10 - 14 sacks, and it's what I expect.
